I want to e-file a tax return for a family member. This taxpayer does not have enough deductions to itemize, so they will be taking the standard deduction. That said, Schedule A does have some deductions listed on it as a result of the return preparation process. Now, Schedule A does not print when you print the return, but I was wondering what will happen when the return is e-filed. Perhaps, I should delete Schedule A before e-filing? Anyone have a standard procedure for this situation?

Thanks in advance.

Don't worry about it. The software will send what you're seeing on the 1040.

Just file the return as is. There are indicators within the e-file which indicate whether the return should be processed with a standard or itemized deduction. Any "extra" data is ignored.
